Odd, I seem to be really going down various memory lanes while listening and exploring pedals for this blog. Today was no exception. Circa early 1990s, I was pretty huge into Billy Corgan and the Smashing Pumpkins. I still think that Gish is an unbelievable album. And they continued that with Siamese Dream and so on.
I was reminded of this when I stumbled on to the Devi Ever Rocket Fuzz pedal.Â Here is a pedal to get some classic Pumpkin fuzz tone.Â This pedal is pretty wild.
Here is the official description from Devi Ever
First of all. People. People, please. This is a fuzz with a fucking pick sensitive dynamic tremolo mode. Sure it’s a little crazy, and to many a bit intimidating, but since when has anything fun been safe? So yeah. Beyond that there’s the dual fuzz capabilities that will make you weep for not having owned this pedal sooner, and chaos abilities unparralleled since… well… since the last pedal I made with a chaos function.
– volume knob : tons of gain on tap
– intensity knob : first mode fuzz texture and gain
– more fuzz foot switch : engages more fuzz and right two knobs and flip switches
– gain knob : controls amount of more fuzz going into main fuzz, controls tremolo speed when tremolo switch is engaged
– power knob : controls amount of guitar signal entering into the pedal, controls tremolo speed when tremolo switch is engaged
– left flip switch : engages tremolo mode
– right flip switch : engages noise oscillation or alternate tremolo sound if left tremolo flip switch is engaged
– true bypass
– mxr sized enclosure
– boutique quality components
– incredibly low mA draw
– silicon transistor based
– enclosure size : 4.7″ x 3.7″ x 1.18″
– 9 volt, 2.1 mm, negative tip power jack
– 9 volt battery snap inside (unscrew the back plate)
Now, I absolutely hated Devi Ever’s demo of this pedal, but found a pretty tasty one by asktehdust. He goes into a pretty tone-accurate rendition of Cherub Rock

Thank you SOOOO much!! Smashing Pumpkins is my all time favorite band (I have their ENTIRE discography if you can believe it! over 200 songs!) Anyway the first thing i thought when i sawthis pedal was “Rocket… the song off Siamese Dream?” Anyway, i really need some money. I AM buying this pedal one day. no doubt about it.Reply
